Platters

Our Story

After working several vintages at wineries in France, South Africa and California, Chris & Andrea chose to settle in the Swartland region of South Africa, firmly believing that the Granite and Schist based terroirs and old vineyards of the Swartland have the potential to produce truly great wine.

Mullineux was established in 2007, when Chris and Andrea Mullineux settled in the Swartland wine region, 60 kilometers north of Cape Town. Within a very short time period the winery established itself as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front. By 2020 the winery had received thirty 5-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide, as well as being awarded  Platter’s Winery of the Year an unprecedented 4 times in 2014, 2016, 2019 and 2020.

In addition, Andrea was named Wine Enthusiast’s 2016 International Winemaker of the Year and in 2016 Chris & Andrea were Tim Atkin’s South African Winemakers of the Year.

In 2013 Chris & Andrea joined forces with Analjit Singh. Together with founding partner Peter Dart they started a parallel winery in Franschhoek called Leeu Passant. The Leeu Passant winery is located on Leeu Estates, which also is the home Analjit’s  hospitality portfolio, the Leeu Collection
